When you start looking for a protein powder, it is essential that you choose one that is as clean as possible. Our guide below helps you find the ideal powder for your needs.

The Base:

Whey protein is an excellent choice for the base, as it is purely organic and grass-fed. If you are not too fond of dairy, then you could choose to find something that is more vegan-friendly.

You could also choose to find a blend based on pea protein. It is a vegetable source of protein and is extremely rich in essential amino acids. It is easily digestible, gets absorbed quickly and is also well tolerated by most people.

Flavours And Sweeteners:

You will find a host of powders out there, there are mainly three types, as follows according to flavours and sweeteners used:

a) Powders that are entirely artificial or those that are a combination of natural and artificial sweeteners and flavours

b) Powders that are made using only natural sweeteners

c) Powders that are made without any added flavouring or sweeteners

Ideally, you should choose powders that have been made without any artificial flavour, or you should decide to use powders that do not use sweeteners or flavouring at all for the most significant benefit.

What else is there?

Besides the essential protein, flavours and sweeteners, manufacture tends to use a host of other ingredients to enhance the flavours of the powder. While some of the ingredients tend to add value in terms of health, the others add value in terms of taste. These include digestive enzymes, prebiotic fibres, glutamine, vitamins and minerals and others.

Choose your vegan powders carefully, and they can indeed play an essential role in determining good health. Make an appointment with Hermeet Singh Suri (HOM, BSc., RHN, Epigeneticist) at The Homeopathic Plus Centre and learn how to choose the ideal blend for your health needs.
